We started the night by eating dinner at Peso's Kitchen and Lounge in Queen Anne. This restaurant is a very special place for Joel and I because it was here that we finally fell head over heels in love! For those of you not familiar with our story, we first met through mutual friends back when we were both students at Western Washington University. My outgoing personality was a bit too much for a very introverted Joel, so we didn't hit it off when we first met. In fact Joel said he didn't want to ever hang out with me again, I was just too much. Oops. We met again a year later when Joel had graduated from WWU and moved down to Redmond for his job with Microsoft. I was still at WWU but had traveled down to see friends race in the Saint Patrick Day 5K in Seattle; I just didn't know this group included Joel. We all decided to go out to dinner the night before race, so we gathered at Alek's apartment. When Joel walked into the room, we were smitten! We ate dinner that night at Peso's with our friends and it was the start of our wonderful journey.
